Of interest to both the theoretical modeling community and to the field researcher, it explores the major hydrological processes encountered in the field, in the laboratory and through computer modeling. As such, the text is seen as a major contribution in the search for initiatives linking hillslope hydrology modeling, field methods for parameterization and new conceptualization based on field observation. Among the many topics covered are: vegetation and hydroclimate, determination of hydraulic soil properties, soil water hysteresis, surface sealing and infiltration, overland flow and erosion, hydrogeochemistry of snow and snowmelt, subsurface runoff, solute transport in soils and runoff production in peat-covered catchments. Each chapter provides state of the art discussions and indicates areas where further research is needed.
